  1. [quote name='ahpook' timestamp='1448572963' post='2916630'] It'll be fine...the pedal will take what it needs from the supply. The figure of 500mA is an idea of the maximum current it can deliver if needs be. [/quote] Sweet. That's what I assumed from the info given in the booklet, but thought I'd check. Cheers!
  2. I have a Nordell Audio Power Core, great little power supply. It has seven 100mA outputs and one 500mA output, along with 3 higher voltage outputs which I don't use/won't use any time soon. My issue is I have/will have 9 pedals on my board. One can be powered off of my TU3, which leaves 8 pedals to be powered from the power supply(including the tuner) I'm wondering if it'll be safe to use the 500mA output for one of the pedals on my board, perhaps the TU3? The instruction booklet states that this output produces a MAX current of 500mA and is 'suitable for digital effects'. I know nothing about anything circuit/electrical related so I was hoping someone could give me their opinion as to whether this output is safe to use on a standard Boss pedal(that will be powering another pedal too) or another pedal on its own?
  3. Update the topic to say Sold, thought I'd found a bargain for a second haha...
  4. In the last week I missed out on two OC-2s due to them being on the wrong side of payday, they both went for £40 as well... None on Gumtree, the others on eBay are going for much more/end too soon... Anyone have one for sale/know other good sites for finding pedals? Uk based preferably, I know of Reverb.com but they tend to be abroad.
  5. [quote name='GazWills' timestamp='1448225386' post='2913847'] I don't know that any modulation pedals can 'suck the low end out'... probably why you hardly ever see bass-specific modulation pedals. I've not tried the bass chorus deluxe, so can't comment on that, but I have the MXR analog chorus, and it sounds great. I have absolutely no desire to try the dearer MXR pedal... [/quote] I've yet to see a bass phaser, but seen plenty of bass choruses and flangers. Tried a few choruses in the past that make the tone too 'thin' and jangly, but the Analog Chorus doesn't seem to do that. Thanks for the feedback!
  6. [quote name='keeponehandloose' timestamp='1448217001' post='2913767'] The PQ3B Isnt a true parametric, the bandwidth is fixed for each of the 3 ranges.I prefer the GE7B ovr the PQ3B there is more overall sound shaping ability. [/quote] Cool, I ended up getting a GE-7B actually. Works really well after my dirty pedals.
  7. Something I hear a lot is that bass-specific pedals are often a waste of time/extra money.. So I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the MXR Analog Chorus and the MXR Bass Chorus Deluxe. The Analog Chorus is a bit cheaper so I was wondering if it'd make much difference getting one or the other with bass. Will the Analog Chorus suck the low end out? Any tips or suggestions welcome.
  8. [quote name='Left Foot' timestamp='1448108840' post='2913097'] In my experience, Octron really is a great piece of kit and the Oc3 is not, I moved it on fair quickly. I dont know about the OC2. The COG pedal is really neat, the sub octave filter is immense. If you can, check out the COG & OCTRON, both mint pedals. [/quote] Yeah they both sound great, only issue for me is that I've shelled out a fair bit on pedals recently and an octave is more of an 'extra' than an essential, which is why I'm leaning more towards say the Organizer, as it can do some more interesting things perhaps. I'll likely save up a bit and perhaps investing in a nice octave like the Octron/Cog at a later date I think
  9. [quote name='FretNoMore' timestamp='1448098960' post='2912992'] The Organizer has a bit of latency (delay between the dry and effect signal) that you may or may not tolerate, or even see as positive part of the effect - personally I hate that aspect of many digital octavers/pitch shifters. [/quote] I figured the 'Lag' control on it allowed you to control that aspect? Demos seem to imply that anyway... [quote name='Sibob' timestamp='1448103047' post='2913025'] The Organiser is not designed to be a true octave in the sense that it sits right on top of your note, the lag is part of the design, and can be adjusted with the lag control. My opinion of it is that it sounds awesome with lag (if that's the ambient vibe you're going for), and a bit strange with no lag. If you want a conventional octave, don't buy the Organizer .....but it is awesome. OC-2 wins everytime for my money, although interested in trying the new iteration of the EBS, plus the COG T-16, octave might change everything Si [/quote] The thing is I'm really not sure what I'm after.. I might get the Organizer for now, as it seems quite multi-functional, and if the Sub isn't quite 'heavy' enough I may look into a OC-2 in the future. Seem to always been some on eBay going for reasonable prices.
  10. [quote name='tonyxtiger' timestamp='1448060885' post='2912887'] Octron tracks well and upper octave is killer. t65 has better more flexible low end and effects loop to mix in parallel sounds. Depends if you want nasty octave (octron/ Cog) or clean octave(Boss MXR) I guess. [/quote] This is something I was discussing with a friend, the way he put it, you can always add dirt.. I'm not sure, like I've said above I quite like the look of the Organizer and have found one for sale... hmmm
  11. Ok so after doing some research, seems like the Organizer rules and does some really cool things.. Going to watch some more demos and what not when I get home but I think that's what I'm after
  12. I've also heard the EarthQuaker Organizer is a good pedal.. Anyone here tried that?
  13. Hi, I want to get an octave pedal but I can't decide between the three listed in the subject... Each have pros and cons so any suggestions, tips etc? Alternatives also welcome.
  14. [quote name='Bearfist' timestamp='1447955250' post='2911834'] I had the same problem when i used a Diago board, i know you said you didn't want to raise it but if you want to give it a try at least rather than ditching the pedal i have a couple of the Diago boosters left over, you're more than welcome to have one, just cover the postage. They aint that big and don't sit too high so i found them fairly inoffensive to look at. [/quote] Oh I won't be ditching the pedal, it's a cool little thing, the TapeEcho setting is really nice, it just kind of dictates how far I can have it from the edge. But the offer off the booster is really kind of you, I'll drop you a PM
  15. [quote name='Muppet' timestamp='1447941144' post='2911673'] Use input and output leads with right angled jacks [/quote] Yeah I have tried this, works out but currently only have one right angle cable (10ft) and I use that to go into my bass. My local guitar shop has closed so when I go in one soon I might grab a 20ft to go out of the board
  16. [color=#222222]Hi, Having issues ordering my board. I have a Diago Showman with a Mooer ReEcho at the end of my chain but the output and input holes are annoyingly low down as it’s a tiny pedal, meaning I can’t have it too close to the edge of the board. [/color] [color=#222222]I find that generally only Boss pedals seem to have holes high enough for the cable to sit nicely over the edge, and I’m reluctant to buy a Boss reverb or delay just for this reason. I’m looking at other reverb pedals but it’ll be annoying to get one to find out it doesn’t sit properly. I’m also reluctant to buy some sort of pedal booster to raise the height, as it’ll look weird.[/color] [color=#222222]Any suggestions for Reverb pedals that might not give me this issue? Looking at the Digitech Polara but can’t tell if it’ll be tall enough… [/color] [size=4][color=#1F497D][font=Calibri]UPDATE: Bearfist has kindly sent me a booster, so hopefully this will solve this issue. Other suggestions still welcome of course.[/font][/color][/size]
  17. [color=#222222]I play a StingRay and I've always gone for Ernie Balls, as they're the most readily available. Occasionally I've gotten D'Addarios but I've never really done a proper tone comparison between the two.[/color] [color=#222222]I'm going to get it set up soon to sort out action issues and while the strings get changed I thought I’d see if anyone had any suggestions of makes or gauges? StingRays can be a bit ‘pingy’ and bite more than growl at times, I play fingerstyle and with a pick about 50/50, depends what I’m playing, so perhaps a string set that might accommodate that and balance out the natural high-end of the bass while adding a bit of low growl would be good.[/color] [color=#222222]I use a few pedals (listed in my sig) so that might affect any choices[/color] [color=#222222] [/color] [color=#222222]Cheers![/color]

  19. Is this located in Germany? I might be interested if it's in the UK (south) potentially.
  20. At the weekend I tried out the Moog MF Chorus, the Earthquaker Sea Machine 2 and the Nemphasis Bass Chorus. The Moog was my least favourite, as it seemed to get too goofy/weird too quickly. The other two sounded great, very usable, but a bit more expensive. Anyone else have any suggestions for good chorus pedals? EDIT: I ended up going for the MXR Analog Chorus, very versatile and sounds great, the Sea Machine however is still my favourite sounding.
  21. So I was looking into the differences between the GEB-7 and the GE-7B, and obviously the frequencies available are the main difference. I plan to get an EQ pedal to use after my Rat/Big Muff (as I've said in other topics) to reduce some of the high end/boost low end and I was wondering which of these two pedals would be best suited? I've looked into the Boss PQ-3B as well but they seem quite hard to get hold of and I've heard they are less versatile than a graphic EQ Thanks!
  22. I've been looking at the old Boss PQ-3B to have after my dirty section to scoop out some harshness from my Rat and Big Muff, I hear they're really good, better than say the GEB-7 or graphic EQs on the whole. But I've also been looking at preamp pedals and was wondering if what the major differences are between a preamp pedal and a parametric EQ? Or which people prefer for this application (or similar)? Thanks!
